So Far this I know

I've learned that it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

I've learned that you can keep going long after you can't.

I've learned that sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down, will be the ones to help you get back up.

I've learned that we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

I've learned that no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

I've learned that even when you think you have no more to give, when a family/friend cries out to you, you will find the strength to help.

I've learned that credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

I've learned that it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I've learned that either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I've learned that two people can look at the same thing and see something totally different.

I've learned -
that there are people who love you dearly,
but just don't know how to show it.

I've learned -
that it takes years to build up trust,
and only seconds to destroy it.

I've learned that sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I've learned that no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.

I've learned that heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

I've learned that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them, and less to do with how many years you have lived.
